Who is the Pembroke Pines Theatre of the Performing Arts?
The Pembroke Pines Theater of the Performing Arts is the oldest continuously operating Community Theater in Broward County. PPTOPA was founded in 1993 by a group of dedicated individuals whose goal was to provide low cost, high quality live theater for the Community.

Recent casts have included performers who have headlined productions at Stage Door, Curtain Call, New Vista, Tamarac, Caldwell and Actors Theaters and who have been nominated and selected as recipients of South Florida's Carbonell awards.
